Buffalo Springs Campground sits on a rolling hillside in the Pike National Forest, providing an ideal setting for biking, hiking, and horseback riding.
Tucked in a stand of aspen, spruce, and other mixed conifers, Buffalo Springs offers private, secluded campsites. At 9,000 feet altitude, the campground maintains a glowing reputation as a place for excellent mountain views.
The Limber Grove Trail, located just north of Buffalo Springs at the Horseshoe Campground, is an easy 3-mile hike along 1,000-year-old limber pines with twisted branches shaped by decades of wind on the exposed region.
Picnicking and wildlife watching are also great activities. Look out for sightings of mule deer, bald eagles, and chipmunks. Volleyball courts and horseshoe pits are also provided on-site.
Campsites are widely spaced. Parking aprons are dirt and rocky and fit a maximum trailer length of 30 feet. Amenities include campfire rings, picnic tables, vault toilets, drinking water, and parking for up to two vehicles.
